Daily Tarot Reflection – 30 Jan 2018 – The Princess of Cups Reversed

You’re allowed to awaken in reflection—the larger sense of awakening and your daily movement into consciousness. Your daily process of awakening is as important to your life and your spiritual journey as anything else. Existential awakening is constant. If you were truly woke, you’d have no reason to be here. Your spiritual being is awakening and reawakening every day in the same way as your body. If you want to change your life, change what you do every day or every week or every month. See how your life shifts simply by choosing to stop and reflect when the moon is new or full or both. It doesn’t have to be a big to do. You don’t have to perform a ceremony with 100 people. It can simply be a marker—like a bell reminding you that it’s time now to reflect for 10 min. See how your life changes when you awaken each day in gratitude, when you refuse to do anything with the first moments of your day until you’ve spent 5 minutes being grateful for all that you have. Do not be afraid to start doing something every day, like drinking lemon water in the morning, coloring, taking 10 minutes to do anything for yourself, reading, or dancing ecstatically because you’ve been granted one more day on this magnificent planet. Sometimes emotions are strong and drive our every movement in ways that are bold and in your face. Sometimes they’re gentle and they run through us like an underground river so that only the alligator people can see and feel them. You’re allowed to be an alligator person. Your job in this life, like Rumi writes, is to respond to every call that excites your spirit—not to respond to every call for help. Your loyalty is to your god. The same is true of everyone else. We walk next to each other, not for each other. No one’s path can be walked for them. If you find someone strong enough to walk next to you, let them, and let yourself walk next to them. You can hold their hand. You can’t carry them. Only god can do that. Today, let yourself awaken how you hope to awaken every day. And if you can’t do that, ask yourself how you hope to awaken each day. This is the greatest gift you can offer yourself today. Ache 🙏🏼
